    His MOS was 11C10 = Indirect Fire Infantryman...but he was a radio operator on that day...and hence, a supreme target for the enemy...

    Thank you for your service. I learned that we lived in the same city/county as you did. You also probably went to the same school district as we do. Please know that you are remembered and that you were thanked for your service.

    From : We Were Soldiers Once--and Young. La Drang... by Harold G. Moore.
    (PFC James H. Shadden recalls, "The ones who were not killed in the first volley hit the dirt, with the exception of our radio operator, Duncan Krueger. I saw him still standing a few seconds later, until he was shot down. I have no idea why he did not get down." PFC Krueger, eighteen, of West Allis, Wisconsin, was killed were he stood.)
